Violet Evergarden also known as Vaioretto Evāgāden in Japanese is a Netflix Original Anime. It was adapted from a light novel series of the same name written by Kana Akatsuki and illustrated by Akiko Takase. The series is pretty short. The first one was published on December 25, 2015 and it had ran till December 26, 2016.
Kyoto Animation then announced that they would be adapting this light novel into a coming- of- age anime TV series. The show premiered on January 2018 to very positive critical fan reception. Both the old fans of the source and the new fans of the show loved what Kyoto Animation brought to the animation. The show was also awarded Best Animation at the 2019 Crunchyroll Anime Awards.
The show was welcomed with open hands and have been receiving praise galore. After the first season, there was an original video animation (OVA) released in July 2018 itself. It was also announced by Kyoto Animation that they will be doing a movie on Violet Evergarden and that the movie would have a very different storyline, even though the movie would be acting as a sequel to season one.
Anime lovers are passionate people. They are devout to their shows. This would mean that even though there is a movie, what fans really want is another season. So is there a chance for another season of Violet Evergarden? Read on to find out.
Will There Be A Second Season?
While never say never is never more applicable to anything other than TV, the chances of another season for Violet Evergarden is getting dimmer by day. The first season of the show had thirteen episodes and was aired on January 11th 2018.
The show had an OVA release on July 4th of the same year. The show is also very beloved and has got some very positive critical and fan response. While that would guarantee a secon season almost immediately, the fact that the source is very short is hard to ignore.
While Kyoto Animation has always worked on stories that are way past what their source material spelled out, The fact that there is a movie happening is not looking good for a season two renewal. So we can say that the chances of renewal is very less.
